In general, in photography, the lighting is best when the sun is low. You have that "golden hour" around both sunrise and sunset. But in a slot canyon like this, you want the sun to be way up high in the sky. Normally, that would produce flat boring images, but here it's perfect lighting because the light streams down into the cracks.

The weird thing is that the canyon looks very cool and dramatic, but the person looks like a cardboard cutout.

I couldn't stand all of those stone faces looking down on me.

Don't have such a low opinion of yourself HLJ.
They might not be judging you.
